Week 40 |
What should you expect in Week 40?
  • YOU DID IT! You made it to week 40 and if you haven’t met your little one by now, you and your doctors may be discussing a plan to induce labor!
  • There are also a few way to natural do so!
  • Those include, walking, having sex, nipple stimulation, acupuncture, acupressure, eating dates, spicy food, and castor oil!
  • And here’s another fun fact, all babies of any ethnicity are born with reddish-purple skin!
  • As BabyCenter reports, this is a result of your baby’s red blood vessels being visible through their skin. “Around 6 months old, your baby’s skin will reach its permanent color.”
  • At this point, the best thing you can do is listen to your doctor and enjoy these last few moments of pregnancy!
  • The next time we see each other, your beautiful little one will be in your arms!
